The Resurrection Project
Raul I. Raymundo has long understood the challenges and strengths of working-class and immigrant families. After earning a bachelor’s degree from Carleton College, he returned to the neighborhood he grew up in and co-founded The Resurrection Project with seed capital of $30,000 from six Chicago-area parishes in 1990.
Since its inception, TRP has leveraged this capital into more than $600 million in community investment and positively impacted more than 198,000 individuals in Latino Southwest Side city neighborhoods and western suburbs. Under his leadership, TRP blends community development, community organizing, human service delivery, and advocacy to build healthier and engaged communities.
